Waters, Helen C. NASSAU Helen C. Waters, 81, passed away peacefully on March 21, 2014 with her loving family by her side after a long courageous battle with cancer. An earthly angel received her wings. Born in Garfield, she was the oldest daughter of the late Walter and Sarah Cure. Married to the late Norman E. Waters Jr., she lived the majority of her life in Nassau. She was very proud of her home and her flower gardens where you could usually find her. She was an avid bird watcher and enjoyed spending time doing crafts, knitting, crocheting and sewing. Most dear to her heart was spending and enjoying time with her family and grandchildren. She was employed by the East Greenbush Central School District as a school bus aide working with the handicapped children who she missed dearly after retiring. Survivors include two sons, Bryon (Suzanne) and Michael (Gina) Waters and two daughters, Laurie (Charles) Collins and Susan (Clayton) Stanley; grandchildren, Taylor and Brittany Collins, Donald McGrath, Mikayla Waters, Jonathan, Christopher, Joshua, Rebecca and Jennifer Waters-Stinchon; and four great-grandchildren.
